For this card I used 3 different techniques: simple paste embossing with glitter; double-glitter and metal embossing.
The flower background stencil is Dreamweaver Flower Lace LJ820. I absolutely love using this stencil with the double glitter technique because it is so dramatic. I also used this same stencil to emboss the red aluminum which I then sanded to highlight the embossed flowers and cut into a heart with my Spellbinders heart die.
The Happy Valentine's stencil LM241 is a classic and must-have in my book! I used the white glossy paste for contrast and then covered the wet paste with red microfine glitter.
I love the dramatic romantic feel of this card, don't you? And quite different from the Steampunk look of last week. Hmmm, what will I come up with for next week's challenge? I guess you'll have to come on back to find out.
